Because all the fast ones went in the first?


Maybe?

Every draft has it's picks that didn't pan out. Maybe Harris is going to be that guy who didn't pan out. Andre Johnson spoke highly of him so the Texans took a chance thinking they needed the help but it didn't work out that way.

i don't think you can jump to conclusions with harris. we have to wait and see if it was kubes just holding him out so he could learn or whatever. Which in hindsight probably was the best idea because our 2,3,4 CBs played pretty well this year and there was no reason to throw him out there

I'm going to hold judgement until then end of the upcoming pre-season.

I don't think they expected McCain to come back like he did. McCain was terrible in coverage in 2010.

I want to see him play first. Him and Carmichael.

With the depth we had we didn't need him to play this year.

If he can't push for time this offseason i would then be worried.

True. Plus, Kj & JAllen were pretty bad in 2010..... both played much better in 2011 & it was hard to take them off the field.

Then you've got Quin at Safety... drop him down in dime packages & you've got a guy who covers better than a LB & tackles better than a DB.

The deck was definitely stacked against him.

Now, the thing I quoted said they didn't think he was fast enough to get down the field on Special Teams.... neither McCain or Allen could stay ahead of the gunners.

Harris is a player. Texans wanted to use first year to develop & build confidence. McCain played great @ nickle so there was no need to push him out there

I think they did what you should do with a rookie CB - let him sit and learn and play him on ST and give him some only a couple of plays for the season. Itīs exactly the opposite strategy of what we did with KJ. We didn`t need Harris last year - but I am pretty sure we`ll know what he is made of after next season.

Scouting report on Harris from Fantasy Football Toolbox

Quote:
... In 2009 he led the ACC in passes defended per contest and tied for second nationally with 15 pass break-ups. His junior campaign in 2010 has been equally successful...

... He has a quick first step and amazing overall speed... he did breakup a team high ten passes. By the end of the season most opposing quarterbacks were avoiding Harris' side of the field and that hurt his numbers...

...His movement and instincts shown at the NFL combine were superb. It would be no surprise now if Harris ended up being the third cornerback off the board behind just Patrick Patterson and Prince Amukamara.
Scouting report from CBS Sports

Quote:
Closing/Recovery: Possesses outstanding game speed, including a late burst to recover if beaten initially. Can plant and drive downhill on the ball. Good recognition to know when he's beat and to make the tackle and when he has a chance to break up the pass or go for the interception. Times his collisions well so he doesn't draw the flag. Times his leaps well to compete for jump passes and shows good hand-eye coordination to slap away the ball as the receiver is attempting to secure it...

I guess the clock is really ticking now.....

There's probably an opening that Allen leaves, maybe he fills in the not-ready-for-primetime section with KJ?
